I am trying to follow my retirement account: ticker symbol "VTTVX" in Microsoft Excel 2010. I tried to Google the information, but I am having trouble figuring out where to put in the ticker symbol. (The rest of the stuff too)

This article details the steps:

However I've gone through the process for this on my PC and am unable to get the stock details for VTTVX. The option for smart tags doesn't appear for this where other stocks do.
Excel gets the data from MSN Money so I thought I'd check the website directly.
Here is the link to the data that MSN Money has for VTTVX:
http://investing.money.msn.com/investments/mutual-fund-rates/?symbol=VTTVX&ocid=qbes

So I'm at a loss of why this isn't working for that stock symbol.

I'm just happy that I'm not the only one who doesn't understand. Who knows, it might work a week?
